Over the past few years the NGP has successfully mobilized the PRIs in sanitation promotion. Even though School Sanitation and Hygiene Education (SSHE) is a non negotiable component of NGP, somehow this component has not got adequate priority and emphasis.

Based on the preliminary discussions, a draft guideline of the scheme, to be called as "Nirmal Vidyalaya Puraskar", has been developed. The draft guideline can be downloaded from
